The Left spent the past two years viciously attacking Ron DeSantis.
They issued dire warnings over his refusal to follow Fauci’s lockdowns and mandates.
But Ron DeSantis just released a set of numbers that prove his pro-freedom policies are good for Florida.
Democrats nationwide are terrified of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
Outside of Donald Trump, there is no other Republican who they fear more than DeSantis.
DeSantis rose to rock star status among voters nationwide for keeping Florida free and open for business during the pandemic.
DeSantis refused to shut down schools and allowed businesses to remain open.
He also banned masks and vaccine mandates while promoting the early use of life-saving monoclonal antibodies as an effective treatment against COVID.
Of course, the Democrats and members of the Fake News Media ripped Ron DeSantis over his pro-freedom policies, even claiming he was intentionally attempting to murder his own citizens by refusing to enforce lockdowns and mandates.
But the latest data from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) shows Florida fared much better off during the pandemic than deep blue states like California and New York that had the most strict COVID regulations in place.
However, it wasn’t just COVID where Florida fared much better than the rest of the country.
Florida’s economy also boomed during the pandemic, with a record-breaking 118 million people visiting the Sunshine State in 2021.
And during a press conference on Friday, Ron DeSantis announced more good news for Florida as a result of his pro-freedom policies.
Ron DeSantis announced that Florida businesses continue to have robust employment opportunities and a benefit of a competitive and energized workforce, resulting in employers adding jobs for 22 consecutive months.
“Florida’s freedom first policies have made Florida a great state for businesses and families to grow,” Ron DeSantis said.
“When you put freedom first, you put hardworking families first, and every Floridian reaps the benefits,” DeSantis continued, adding that “February’s economic data is more concrete evidence that Florida is on the right path.”
“Florida is lucky to have a Governor that works to give Floridians the economic freedoms they deserve and that support economic growth,” said the Secretary of the Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) Dane Eagle.
She continued stating, “DEO is proud to assist in building the competitive and educated workforce that is the foundation of Florida’s economic growth and stability, contributing to Florida’s low unemployment rate, outpacing the national rate for 15 consecutive months.”
Thanks to Ron DeSantis’ pro-freedom policies, Florida’s economic indicators have continued a positive trajectory and are surpassing pre-pandemic rates.
Florida’s total private sector employment increased by 52,000 jobs in February of 2022, which is an increase of 0.6 percent over the month.
Under DeSantis’ leadership, Florida also outpaced the national rate for 15 consecutive months.
“Florida is lucky to have a Governor that works to give Floridians the economic freedoms they deserve and that support economic growth,” said DEO Secretary Dane Eagle. “DEO is proud to assist in building the competitive and educated workforce that is the foundation of Florida’s economic growth and stability, contributing to Florida’s low unemployment rate, outpacing the national rate for 15 consecutive months.”
Even though the Left continues to attack and smear Ron DeSantis, the data shows that his policies are good for Florida.
And this is why polls show DeSantis is expected to handily defeat his Democrat opponent in November.
